Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has completed a move to Spanish club FC Barcelona.
The Chilean captain, who has been impressive in his country’s fine run at the FIFA World Cup so far, joins the Blaugrana from fellow La Liga side Real Sociedad.
“FC Barcelona and Real Sociedad have reached an agreement for the transfer of goalkeeper Claudio Bravo,” Barcelona confirmed on their official website.
“Claudio Bravo will sign a contract with FC Barcelona for the next four seasons.”
The 31-year-old started his career at local side Colo-Colo before moving to Spain in 2006, spending eight years and making over 200 appearances for Sociedad.
Bravo will compete directly for the gloves with fellow new signing Marc-Andre ter Stegen following the departures of both Victor Valdes and Jose Pinto from the club.
Bravo becomes Barca’s fifth acquisition of the new season, joining Croatia’s Ivan Rakitic as well as emerging talents Gerard Deulofeu and Rafinha, who return from their loan spells at Everton and Celta Vigo respectively.
